Title:Torsional oscillations of gun barrel
Author(s):Smith, T.E., Jr.; Stippes, M.
Gun Barrel
Abstract:This report is concerned with an analysis of the torsional oscillations of an artillery barrel when subjected to the moment of an accelerating projectile. A modal series is obtained, the coefficients of which are the time dependent generalized coordinates. For purposes of obtaining numerical results, this series was truncated at two terms; the subsequent system of ordinary differential equations was programmed for the analog computer. Graphic solutions are given for several values of the barrel size to projectile mass ratio.
